My Favourite Things about Christmas

Do you all remember that song in The Sounds of Music? You know the one…

“Girls in white dresses with blue satin sashes
Snowflakes that stay on my nose and eyelashes
Silver white winters that melt into springs
These are a few of my favourite things”

Yes as I was saying, that song. I often hear it around this time of year, I think it has become a “favourite” Christmas song for many people. Either way, I think she explains things pretty well in this song. So for the first day of my 12 Days of Blogging Christmas Challenge, I think it is fitting, to begin with listing some of my own favourite Christmas things to really help get me into the holiday spirit. Here it goes…

  • Coloured Christmas Lights
  • Watching Christmas Movies
  • Gift Wrapping
  • Spending time with my friends and familyfavorite
  • Decorating the Christmas Tree
  • Snowy Nights
  • Christmas Eve at my aunt’s
  • Baking Cookies
  • Cuddling up next to the fire and watching old Christmas shows
  • Enjoying the generally good mood that everyone seems to be in around this time of year
  • Turkey dinner at Mom’s on Christmas Day
  • Listening to Christmas music
  • Driving around looking at Christmas lights
  • Building gingerbread houses
  • Christmas Shopping
  • Drinking eggnog

So there you have it, a few of my favourite things about Christmas. And no I am not a 7-year-old girl… this time of year just captures my inner child, what can I say.

  1. Good post Steph! My favorite things are: days off, sleeping in, cool weather, hot drinks, hot soup, hot baths, writing, Christmas lights, Christmas decor around the city, presents, food. All things end in food!

  2. What a lovely idea!! I may be able to take part in some of these if not all of them:) Thank you so much for the tag!
    BTW, I love your list, but I would particularly like to take part in sitting around a fire since we don’t have real fireplaces down here:)
